Today we set off in our “Duster” SUV rental and headed out South West hugging the Al Hajar mountains to visit the ancient Nizwa Castle and Fort followed by a visit to Bahla Fort then on to Jibreel Castle. Tomorrow we’ll drive East along the coast to visit the city of Sur, about 200 km from Muscat. The Omanis are very proud of their heritage so the vast majority of their historical sites have been restored to their former glory. They are truly a sight to behold.
